Park Forest is in Illinois near Chicago. This "news flash" is virtually 100% enviro propaganda, i.e., an op ed. Judge Ochoa has been appointed by the California Judicial Council to oversee all litigation related to suction dredging. It is not unusual procedurally in such a situation for a potential conflict between judicial entities to be consolidated -- in this case in San Bernardino County. This coming Tuesday Judge Ochoa will hear final arguments in regard to the motion for summary judgment. Quite possibly he also will rule from the bench. He may or may not issue an injunction of his own. If he does, it will apply to all counties in California. It may be in favor of the dredging community or against -- we will not know until he rules. But THAT is the ruling that will be final at the superior court level, not the above referenced "news flash" procedural step Judge Ochoa has taken to consolidate these matters as he has been appointed to do.

Bottom line: Hope springs eternal. Gnash your teeth now, vent your frustrations, point fingers -- none of it will affect the outcome. It ain't over 'til it's over. One thing is for certain: if PLP and the New 49ers' hard legal efforts manage to pull this off, it will be a happy day indeed for all of us. Think positive!!!!

For clarification, a new hearing date has been scheduled for August 27th in Rancho Cucamonga (as opposed to July 23rd) regarding the Motion For Summary Judgment.

I thought the next hearing was for injunctive relief,until the court could properly hear and rule on the case. Should by chance we win, and who knows, you will see the other side rushing for a judgement, much different that their approach the past four years. To me, these cases should have not been consolidated. The Siskiyou county case had more to do with the orginal definition and Dept of Fish and Shames illegall use of the office of OAL when they knew this did not meet the states legal criteria for a emergency. If this is what we face in court, we cannot and will not win. If Judge Ochoa tries the case on its merits, I think they will be handing out temp permits on the 28th... I am not a lawyer, jmho and trying to keep up with the multi pronged attacke for Fish and Shame, the Karuks, and the Center for Biodiversity and Sierra Fund, and all the little fishing minions that have jumped on board and thrown mining under the bus. They think they are safe, if CBD thinks we kill fish, wait till they go after the fishing groups, who poison the rivers with tons of lead and metal, whose 2 cycle motors spew oil and fumes into the rivers and lakes, and whose SOLE purpose is to kill as many fish as their licenses will allow....

Please refrain from presenting facts that are contrary to our agenda as they only complicate the issues. Please go back to your television for another session of brain deadening and indoctrination.
